Our goal is to secure permanent homes for children. When possible, we reunite families. When that is not possible, PCHAS works within the state’s foster care network to provide both emergency and long-term placement solutions for children. Considering the best interest of the child, we strive to place siblings together in a relative/kinship placement whenever safe and appropriate. Ages range from infancy to 17 at the time of admission.
PCHAS case managers work with foster parents to give children stability and healing. We structure our therapeutic services to help children and parents cope with social and emotional difficulties, developmental delays, learning problems and behavioral challenges.
Our foster care case management consortium is contracted by the Missouri Alliance for Children and Families and we work collaboratively with the partner agencies within our consortium.
